The Black Hills FCU Charitable Fund was formed in 2010 with the mission of supporting charitable causes in western and central South Dakota. Foremost among those causes is the BHFCU School Supply Drive.
The Charitable Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization and recognized as a tax exempt public charity by the IRS. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Started in 1997, the Black Hills Federal Credit Union School Supply Drive annually collects and distributes more than 90,000 supplies for more than 6,000 local students in need. This effort is supported by a growing network of individuals and businesses who donate time, supplies and monetary contributions.
We always look forward to the Drive. Obviously, we love to help students in need. But, it's also an incredible reminder of how fortunate we are to be a part of this community. There are so many individuals and organizations invested in the cause. It's both humbling and inspiring.
Donations are tax deductible and can be made to the Black Hills FCU Charitable Fund, a 501(c)(3) Organization. For details, contact Kylene Casanova at 605.718.6155.
Here at BHFCU, we aim to embody the credit union philosophy of "People Helping People." Our Community Action Team is comprised of groups of employees, who volunteer their time and energy to co-chair various fundraising endeavors. We're committed to improving the communities BHFCU serves and the lives of those who call the area home.
